  • Reference:[3]

double-dagger As part of their penalty for NCAA violations, Alabama has retroactively vacated its 2005 victory over Tennessee. However, the penalty to vacate victories does not result in a loss (or forfeiture) of the affected game or award a victory to the opponent, therefore Tennessee still considers the game a loss in their official records.[4]
